an effort to take the temperature of public defense across the country and i visited a lot of public defenders offices, watched a lot of trials and discovered that there was a crisis in the court's that probably all of you are well aware of and really tried to dig in and find out what was going on and where all these problems were arising that we didn't have equal justice 50 years after gideon. what i would like to do is read a little section of the book first and talk for a few minutes and read a brief section. so, the section i'm going to read is in the conclusion because it's about public defenders in a conference i went to with public defenders since i thought there were probably quite a few of you in the audience, you might find it musing. i don't know. the national defenders association opened the conference in washington dc in 2011 addressed the crowd of 300 public defenders with a room with space for many more. does society demonize you? of course. do they suggest you are working for the wrong people? of course they do do they suggest you are work for thugs? of course the

thing completely likely to get through it is a new defense authorization act. there will be a lot of interesting debates to watch on that to see what gets included. one thing we will watch is to see whether any legislation sanctioning iran is added to the bill. the administration is doing everything it can to prevent congress from doing that, but a lot of members are still interested in adding sanctions, sending signals they are not interested in the deal obama wants to sign onto. also the farm bill. negotiators are trying to reach an agreement. if they cannot get a deal, they will have to at least extend existing spending so that is something that can be done. the senate is here for an extra week. they will look at a lot of nominations, particularly after the filibuster changes that democrats rammed through a few weeks ago. among the big nominees to watch for are the new chairwoman of the federal reserve, janet yellen. host: a number of articles in the last couple of weeks have suggested that this is the most unproductive covers ever. why has this year been so hard to get into an

creation of an air defense identification zone on november 23. it is china's right to create such a zone. it is not a no-fly zone. it is not a zone in which the chinese are necessarily threatening to use force, but it is a zone in which traffic is monitored. thishinese announced basically by attaching some conditions to it. the international aircraft flying into the zone would identify their planes, their path. it was mandatory notification. air defense zones generally speaking did not require mandatory identification unless you are going to the country which has created his own. it was not the creation of the zone that created the problem. it was the conditions the chinese attached to that zone, the mandatory character of them. particular,tates in but other countries, this is a highly traveled air corridor. the fact there were conditions attached to it was very bothersome. the other thing is the chinese created this air defense zone that included airspace over contested islands with japan. inally the modus operandi creating these zones is to negotiate where you have overlapped or contes
and in the senate. to somehow say we want to ease sequestration so we can line the pockets of defense contractors and by the way we're going to do it on the backs of senior citizens in this country, is just an anathema, to me and most people in this country, generally, and certainly the democrats in the house and senate. >> and meanwhile, congresswoman, neo conservative commentator bill crystal, here on msnbc touting a seemingly secret plan, a paul ryan plan that would replace the affordable care act. can you give us any intel on what that secret plan is? >> i think it's so secret that it hasn't been developed yet. i think the republicans have -- since we passed the affordable care act back in 2010, they have talked about just repeal. repeal, repeal. then they said repeal and replace. but then they had nothing to replace it with. so it is really a bottomless pit of ideas that never seem to come to the surface in the republican caucus. and i think it's because they really don't want to have a solution for those who have been uninsured. the 45 million americans who are uninsured. that is not who th
